"Little do men perceive what loneliness is, or how far it extendeth. For a crowd is not company, and laces are but a gallery of pictures, and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love." (Francis Bacon writing of London in 1607)

What of this city today? This film follows twelve people in the course of a single evening in London.
"It's a kind of runway with planes taking off, planes landing, all the time, coming and going, never stopping for very long. And this is the way I look at London-somewhere to progress from, not somewhere to be beaten by." (Chris Feeney, a teenager)

Commentary written by Patrick O'Donovan.
